ACUPUNCTURE | TCM

points2

Having learned Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cera Lynn has taken an eclectic approach to Acupuncture.  Her experience with Japanese needling techniques, shiatsu, and Dr. Tan’s Balancing methods have given her a selection of choices for individual needs.  Some of us have different responses to healing techniques and Cera’s intuitive approach brings fruitful results.

What is Oriental Medicine?

Acupuncture is a different paradigm of medicine.  Nature and elemental theory merge to diagnose and treat chronic and acute illnesses.  In addition, TCM maintains optimum health in those individuals who actively wish to prevent disease.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Qi or the “Life Force” flows through a network of twelve major pathways or “meridians.”  These correspond to specific organs, such as the heart, spleen, liver, etc.  Along these meridians are specific acupuncture points which affect the corresponding organ system.  These points are also used to treat different conditions of disease. When the acupuncture needles are inserted into these specific points, the meridians are opened to allow the “qi” to flow properly, thus restoring health by balancing and harmonizing the energy to the organs.
